CLEVELAND (AP) - A state lawmaker in Ohio wants to provide a tax break to property owners who home-school their children.

The proposal comes from state Sen. Kris Jordan of Ostrander in central Ohio.

His bill would reduce property taxes for parents who home-school their children by an amount equal to what they pay for school levies in their local districts.

According to The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer (bit.ly/15qrbou), Jordan says the legislation will help those who sacrifice to home-school a child.

One leading school group argues that the measure could lead to more tax breaks at the expense of public education.
